Velma and Evander Interactive Marble Busts 4 5 19 19
No Quality Control I purchased the Velma and Evander Interactive Marble Busts. They're bigger than I expected which is great. They look great except for the sticky tape glue all over the heads of each one. As far as the packing of the item, the heads stuck to the Styrofoam. The biggest problem was that they didn’t work at all. Nothing! No movement, no sound, no nothing. To much to pay for no animation. Read the instructions and still got nothing. When I returned them, the lady said that they have had a lot of returns and unfortunately a lot of them don’t work. My first time ordering and two out of three items didn’t work. The Wilting Black Roses didn’t work either. The music played but the roses didn’t wilt. I’m a little skeptical about the quality of these items. Order at your own risk! September 20, 2014
Wanted to love them but 2 defective sets in a row We are huge Haunted Mansion fans, so when I saw these, I had to have them. The first set: male head's mouth didn't move when he spoke and the female's did, but it made a horrible clicking sound when she did talk. Returned for an exchange and had totally different issues. This time the female head was fine but the male's eyes didn't light up instead his mouth did as if they lights had fallen inside during shipping. There is no way to get inside the head to make any adjustments, so back they went. I won't order another set. It's clear there are many, many duds of these and even if you get a good set, I doubt it would last long. September 21, 2014
Good purchase These two are a kick! My grandchildren love them, and so do I. Great for Halloween decor. Spooky, but not scary which is the look I go for. I want to entertain the kids, but not necessarily scare them. (Well maybe a little). September 18, 2014
Great Product I cannot speak for all the Grandinroad products, although many do look really good, but this is an extremely fun and spooky decoration. They look like actual busts and anyone walking by would be fooled. The sound is great and the witty repartee between the two is funny. Great product and well worth the price. I guess the only con would be that they are, obviously, connected by an easily hidden wire so the two have to sit within several feet of each other. But considering that they are talking to each other or together they should sit together anyway. August 31, 2014
Velma and Evander Very expensive decoration for a single season of operation. Very excited to get these in time for the season 2 years ago. Then, last year they didn't work out of the box. Don't waste your money. September 8, 2014
Velma and Evander Just received Velma and Evander, love them they look better in person! The sound is amazing too! September 8, 2014
Nice but didn't work properly Velma & Evander feel real and look creepy. I love seeing them interact and are quite humorous (although I wish they had a few more phrases). However, my shipment came with a manufacturing defect. Velma did not move her mouth and Evander had a blemish/age spot in his eye. I exchanged them and upon receiving my 2nd pair Velma occasional made a loud jammed motor sound when she turned her head. I ended up returning for a full refund. On a positive note, customer service reps were friendly and helpful. October 14, 2013
Better and larger than expected I am very impressed with the quality and detail that went into creating Velma and Evander. They are much bigger than I imagined they would be and are very life like in many ways. They were a big hit and I cannot wait to make a better display with them at next years Halloween party.

Motion sensor and outdoor use

Hi,
Is there anyway to have these play continuously? Also, I would like to use these outdoors. From an engineering standpoint, what would be the concern? Could I seal them better in certain areas to make them more suitable for the outdoors?

Thanks,
Dwight

Answer: 
The Velma and Evander Interactive Marble Busts are sound and motion activated, unfortunately there is no way to keep them going continuously and because they need to be plugged in to an outlet, we recommend placing them in a covered outdoor area.

Can I get replacement cords?

We had these donated to our non-profit to use for our Halloween fund raiser, but they did not have the cords to connect one to the other or to plug in. We really like to get them running if we could. Can we get replacement cords? thank you!
